Johannesburg - Expelled ANC Youth League leader Julius Malema has sent out an e-mail announcing he needs money to start a new political platform, Beeld newspaper reported on Wednesday.

The e-mail detailed 15 reasons why the African National Congress, Congress of SA Trade Unions, the SA Communist Party, and the ANC Youth League, in his opinion, could not provide the answer to South Africa's problems.

He sent the e-mail after Beeld tried to get comment from him on his plans to start a new political party.

He said he was trying to source money for his new political venture, the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF), and urged those interested in his venture to contact him via e-mail or social networks. He also asked for proposals on how to collect money.

Malema said the ANC's integrity and credibility would gradually decrease, independent trade unions, like Amcu (Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union), would become bigger and stronger, the poor would lose interest in politics, the middle class would continue to drift away from the ANC, and South Africa would degenerate into a kleptocracy.

He also said the EFF wanted the emphasis to shift from "reconciliation" to "justice".
